What's Your Chronotype? | Your Best Productivity Timeframe

This new quarter i'll be sharing a lot on productivity as I practice them for myself, i hope to share positive impacts it has given me! I stumble upon an article on Chronotypes at Bustle on Facebook where you will have to identify your chronotype and understand when do you work best. Totally got me curious, and I went on to read up on Bulletproof's 'Being a Morning Person Isn't the Key to Productivity, This Is.' As I read and understood more, I realized - the morning person in me will never happen. period.


So what is a Chronotype? 
chronotype is the behavioral manifestation of underlying circadian rhythms of myriad physical processes. A person's chronotype is the propensity for the individual to sleep at a particular time during a 24-hour period. - Wikipedia

The Power of When, written by Dr. Micheal Breus - explains that everyone has their own time clock ticking in them, depending on which Chronotype you are, you work best at your energy peak time! 

What's YOUR Chronotype?
Take this quiz by answering a few questions to find out below!

That totally explains why I was never a morning person - and all my energy are hyped up during the evening. Getting to know my chronotype helps me prioritize my energy storage, and helps me plan more properly so I don't waste too much time on brain draining task during the day - while i focus more on routine or easy tasks during my zoning time frame.

Honestly it helped me so much in planning my everyday task and idea generations. I feel more productive everyday making sure all my energy was utilized fully at the right timing!


Below are some understanding of other Chronotypes that I read about around :

Bear are the chillax self-paced, who prefers to get their seven or eight hours of sleep and will hit the snooze button a few times in the morning, topping as the most common chronotype because their energy levels follows the sun 
Dolphins are  highly intelligent perfectionists and light sleepers as the brain is constantly moving, seems that they are the regular insomiacs 
Lions wake up early without an alarm clock and just get going but energy dips in mid afternoon and tucks in early/on-time.

Here's more great reads on the topic too! planning to get the book myself to know alot more. 

Here’s the Perfect Daily Schedule That Corresponds to Your Chronotype |


Hope you will be able to identify your Chronotype and work your way towards your best timing!
